Besides increasing your home’s appeal, new siding will also boost its protection against the elements. By improving insulation, it can also help cut down your heating and cooling costs. Replacing your siding is a major investment, making proper planning even more essential.
Here are tips to help you prepare for a siding replacement project.
Clear Your Home’s Exterior
One of the first things you need to do before the actual siding replacement begins is remove all items away from your home’s exterior. Bring outdoor furniture, gardening equipment, potted plants and other decor inside your garage or shed. Your driveway must be clear so the workers can easily access your home.
Tend Your Yard
Before your siding contractor arrives, make sure that your yard has been taken care of. With your grass cut short, it will be easier for the workers to locate nails or refuse materials in your outdoor area. It helps ensure the safety of your home and makes cleanup easier for your contractor. Trimming trees and shrubs surrounding your home can also help.
Don’t Forget About Your Indoor Belongings
Removing and installing siding can cause intense vibrations that can knock out items hanging on your wall. Be sure to remove picture frames, decor, artworks and items that might fall before your project starts.
Take Care of Your Children and Pets
Do your best to keep children and pets away from the construction site. Prior to the installation, talk to your kids about areas of the house they can’t access during the actual siding replacement.
